  • (27:10) – What is ‘vicar’ of Christ?

  • (33:01) – Your opening comments on happy new year to blessed new year is the same shift that occurred with the Mass when they changed the word happy to blessed.
  • (36:48) – Do we get our Guardian angel at conception or birth? and where is the Ark of the covenant now?
  • (38:02) – Galatians: What does Paul mean by works of righteousness?
  • (40:55) – When John was in prison he asked if Jesus was the one so why did he say behold the Lamb of God in today’s reading?
  • (42:45) – Why does the Church not talk more about the consequences of sin today?
